Bear Spray Rental Kiosk

How it Works

Bear Spray Shack is similar to your favorite red movie rental box but for bear spray. You can rent AND return our Mace bear spray canisters straight at the rental machine. We geek out on technology, and the programing behind Bear Spray Shack validates that every canister rented will be un-sprayed, at full volume, and safe for re-distribution.

We’ve coded out human error with our rental machines by using machine vision, scales, and our figurative secret ingredient: technology that identifies if the canister has been sprayed before it even gets weighed. This three-step validation process is what makes us different than anyone else on the market.

Our moms think we’re geniuses, but we just think we’re making the safest, most reliable and affordable option on the market.

Online Reservations

For the practical, precise humans that are uber responsible. The salt-of-the-earth, used to ordering ahead types of ‘outdoorsy’ people.

Walk-up Rentals

For the free spirited and the spontaneous ‘outdoorsy’ people who fly by the seat of their hiking pants, answer when nature calls them unexpectedly, and don’t take life too seriously–unless in this case it’s yours.

Any Location Drop Off

Multiple 24/7 Shack locations means returning your can of bear spray has never been easier. Even if you’re out exploring nature from dusk to dawn, you can conveniently return your rental to any location, any time.

Don’t Skip the BS

Rentals start as low as $10.

Bear Safety

When it comes to preserving your safety, peace of mind, and outdoor wildlife playgrounds at large, we believe that arming yourself with bear spray shouldn’t be a complicated or costly process.

  • Renting bear spray and have no clue what to do? Well…. SCAN THE CAN!! Scanning the can will take you to a lightweight, low-service-friendly information page that will walk you through how to be safe and use bear spray! So what are you waiting for. SCAN THE CAN ALREADY!
  • Hey, Jackson Hole! We got this nifty kiosk here that we are putting the finishing touches on, and we need to give it a good home! If you know anyone who might want to partner with us throw us a line. We’re looking to partner with hotels, guide companies, gear rental shops, gift shops, airports, etc. So if you run one, or know someone who does, or just have a favorite then shout them out! #jacksonhole #jacksonwyoming #teton #tetonsnationalpark #tetons #grandtetonnationalpark #grandtetons #bearspray #rentals #bearaware #bearsafety #bearsprayshack
  • Ever see a bear spray vending machine before? Now you can in West Yellowstone or Whitefish, Montana! Our Shacks are open 24-hours a day to make rentals and returns super easy
  • Let us know what you think we should do? Keep it? Change it?
  • It may have been a short time #westyellowstone , but it was a good time! We’re closing down early this season and bringing the machine back to its den to make some improvements and updates so that next season we can continue to provide you the easiest bear spray rental experience possible! See you next spring 👋
  • Out hiking in bear country with no cell service? Make sure you always keep your BSS bear spray inReach! (Get it? Garmin inReach? 😂) Pro Tip: If you’re going to spend time recreating outdoors without cell service, make sure to have some form of emergency beacon. Just like bear spray, it’s better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it.
